Default RE: Optical ignition cutoff setup


Don't know if you had the chance to check out an alternative in optical kills, Check the TBM Wike Rc IBEF opto kill/regulator. I have one on my 540 50cc, powering the DLE 55 ignition. Simple and effective... saves the weight of ignition battery+opto kill. 

Have mine plugged into my Rx which is powered by 2 x 2200 7.4 V 35-70C lipos in parallel (4400 amp total Mah and redundant based on parallel connection) and running through a dual sky-fail safe regulator giving out 8 AmP constant. Im sure you can substitute the lipo's with li-ion or liFe.
